To broaden its range of products for electric vehicles (EVs), manufacturer Goodyear has introduced a new Goodyear ElectricDrive all-season tire and two new sizes of the company’s ultra-high-performance (UHP) ElectricDrive GT tire.
The Goodyear ElectricDrive all-season product has been developed for commuter touring sedans and crossover utility vehicles and has been engineered with a load index capable of handling the heavier weight associated with EVs. An all-season tread compound ensures traction and a long-lasting service life, while the tire’s asymmetric tread pattern delivers excellent handling in a variety of weather scenarios.
The tire will be released in sizes 215/50R17 95V XL and 215/55R17 94V SL and benefits from a V speed rating and Goodyear’s SoundComfort technology to reduce road noise inside the cabin.
First launched in December 2021, Goodyear has also introduced two new sizes of the ElectricDrive GT tire range. The tire features a W speed rating and is now available in sizes 255/45R19 104W XL, 235/45R18 98W XL and 235/40R19 96W XL.
“Goodyear remains focused on offering innovative products and technologies for the EV segment and providing drivers with the quality, performance and enhanced treadwear they expect from our brands,” said Michiel Kramer, director, consumer product marketing at Goodyear. “The addition of the new ElectricDrive GT sizes allows us to meet the unique needs of more electric vehicle drivers with premium, performance Goodyear products.”
